If there is a folder called document fonts in the folder with the InDesign file, InDesign will use those fonts. If you move the file outside of that it won’t.
So I sent the collected folder to my desktop. When I open the InDesign file all the type looks greek.
When I go back into my jobs folder and open that the fonts are perfect. Is there a reason for that? My client received the collected folder and the fonts are all greek.
- Where are the fonts? They should be in a package in a folder named Document Fonts.
- What OS has your client? Mac or Windows? Version?
- What kind of fonts do you use? If the fonts are Postscript fonts the support on Windows 8 and Yosemite has been dropped, such fonts work only in the Font Folder aside the InDesign Program App. If the fonts are Mac fonts, they cannot work on Windows. Only if the fonts are OTF fonts, they will work on Windows and Mac without problems.
- Why are you sending open files? If your client wants to print it, he should use an exported PDF. It is not legal to package fonts and to send them to your client for further use.
1. Mac OSX Yosemite Library / fonts
2 Me - Yosemite Indesign CS6 - Client (Designer) Yosemite Indesign CC (latest version)
3. TrueType and PostScript Type 1 fonts But only a couple of the fonts aren't loading on all computers. the rest are loading for the client.
4. Client handles files to the printer so they need the fonts to work also.
Don't use T1 (PostScript) fonts any more. Stop using them.
